Boston Red Sox second baseman

<P>Pedroia to have</P>
<P></P>
<P>Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia played 175 games with a left thumb injury, and he now realizes the problem is more extensive than previously believed.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Pedroia will undergo surgery Nov.</P>
<P></P>
<P>"I guess because I played with (the injury) the whole year, it's made it a little tougher," Pedroia told the website. "If they do the normal surgery, there has to be some good endings (of the ligament) to re attach it. If there's not, we have to do it a different way.</P>
<P></P>
<P>He added that he should be fully recovered in plenty of time for spring training.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Pedroia was injured on Opening Day, but it did not prevent him from playing a career high 160 regular season games. He then started all 16 of Boston's postseason games as the Red Sox rolled to the World Series championship.</P>
<P></P>
<P>While earning his fourth All Star Game appearance and third Gold Glove, Pedroia batted .301 with a .372 on base percentage, a .415 slugging percentage, nine homers and 84 RBIs. The homer total was his lowest in six years. "But when I hurt my Women's Kent Tekulve Jersey thumb, I couldn't hit the ball in. So, they were actually doing me a favor pitching me away so I could slap at some balls.</P>
<P></P>
<P>"It was a grind some days, but my teammates were great at picking me up just at the right Kent Tekulve Jersey time. Besides, I didn't want to miss out. I knew from Day 1 this was a special season."</P>
<P></P>
<P>MARINERS HIRE MCCLENDON</P>
<P></P>
<P>Eight years removed from his lone managerial stint, Lloyd McClendon is getting a second chance.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The Seattle Mariners hired McClendon as their manager Tuesday.</P>
<P></P>
<P>"I am extremely excited about the opportunity to manage the Seattle Mariners," McClendon said in a statement. "Seattle has a tremendous group of talented players and the fans and city should be excited about the club's future. I'm looking for this group to take a big step forward."</P>
<P></P>
<P>McClendon, 54, managed the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2001 through most of the 2005 season, compiling a 336 446 record. His clubs never finished higher than fourth place in the National League Central.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The past seven years, McClendon served as the Detroit Tigers' hitting coach. He was Detroit's bullpen coach in 2006.</P>
<P></P>
<P>"Lloyd is a bright and articulate guy," Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said in a statement. "He has major league managerial experience and he has served in a vital capacity in Detroit under one of the game's best managers. He is a tireless worker and is very respected by the players with whom he has worked. We look forward to Lloyd embracing our players as we move the Mariners forward."</P>
<P></P>
<P>McClendon takes over for Eric Wedge, who parted ways with the Mariners following a 70 89 season. Wedge missed a portion of the 2013 season Dave Parker Jersey after sustaining a mild stroke. He guided Seattle for three years, posting losing records each season and a 213 273 record overall.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Jim Leyland, McClendon's longtime boss in Detroit, retired as the Tigers' manager following the American League Championship Series. McClendon interviewed for the job, but Detroit ultimately hired Brad Ausmus, who has no major league managerial experience.</P>
<P></P>
<P>McClendon played eight seasons in the big leagues, for the Cincinnati Reds, Chicago Cubs and Pirates, mostly as an outfielder. He batted .244 with a .325 on base percentage, a .381 slugging percentage, 35 homers and 154 RBIs in 570 games.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Others who were up for the Mariners' managerial job included Oakland A's bench coach Chip Hale, San Francisco Giants bench coach Ron Wotus, San Diego Padres bench coach Rick Renteria, Los Angeles Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach and former Mariners catcher Dave Valle, according to media reports.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The gift, a birthday present according to an ESPN report, could be in violation of league rules.</P>
<P></P>
<P>As stated in Section 5 of the MLBPA rules:</P>
<P></P>

<P></P>
<P>Cano, a five time all star, joined Jay Z Roc Nation sports group earlier this year.</P>
<P></P>
<P>According to the report, agents are permitted to purchase gifts for clients under $500 as long as they inform the MLBPA in writing.</P>
